HOW WE CREATE CHANGE
Global citizens believe that the world can bring about the end of extreme poverty by 2030.
It won't be quick, and it certainly won't be easy, but it can happen if we - as global citizens - create an unstoppable movement committed to changing the systems and structures that keep people trapped in extreme poverty.
Extreme poverty won't be ended by charities, businesses or governments working alone. Realising the potential of every person on the planet, this platform - Global Citizen - brings together the support of all of charities, businesses and governments.
When an organised, critical mass of individuals partner with leading organisations, get organised and equipped to take meaningful action, together we can change specific policies and practices that contribute to keeping people in extreme poverty.
Repeat this cycle across many issues, and this movement can ensure that our governments, businesses and selves act in support of the world’s poor, so that progressively, the systems, structures, policies and processes are changed, ending extreme poverty by 2030. Global citizens - you - are at the heart of our strategy to creating meaningful and systemic changes for the world's poorest people.
Together with partners this platform makes change happen through our theory of change:
We design and host campaigns on critical issues
Capitalize on influential moments and people
Channel the voices and actions of global citizens
Support global citizens and others like you to build a movement of people working to end extreme poverty
victories that affect lives bringing the world closer to zero poverty by 2030
At Global Citizen, we believe we can achieve more and better impact for the world’s poor together, so we’re building and empowering a movement of people that includes people like you.
By providing platforms like the Global Citizen website and events, more and better impact becomes possible through the catalysing effect of channelling your voices and actions. Global Citizen amplifies our unified voice as a clear public mandate, making world leaders accountable to us, encouraging them to bring about systemic policy changes for the world’s poorest people.
We will share with you how world leaders respond to your call and the difference this is making to the world’s poorest people. And if they don’t respond, we will hold the mirror up and keep on channelling the voices of global citizens until no one is living in extreme poverty any more.
We are a social action platform for a global generation that wants to solve the world’s biggest challenges.
On our platform you can learn about issues, take action on what matters most and join a community committed to social change. We believe we can end extreme poverty by 2030, because of the collective actions of Global Citizens across the world.
Since 2012, millions of Global Citizens around the world have taken over six million actions to solve the world's biggest challenges. That’s six million emails, tweets, petition signatures and phone calls targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. To date, the actions by our global community along with our high level advocacy efforts and with our partners, have resulted in 130 commitments and policy announcements from leaders, including financial aid valued at over $25.6 billion that is set to affect the lives of 656 million people.
Global Citizen works in partnership with the NGO sector and with corporate sponsors to deliver audience and value in innovative and impactful ways. Our unique ability to mobilize mass audiences allows us to achieve demonstrable policy success.
